==Now works with both both vanilla DS and RoG DLC!==

Finding the harsh world of Don't Starve a little lonely? Want a companion to share in the highs and lows of your journey? I did - so I added pets. Figured a few other people might be interested so here it is, uploaded for anyone to enjoy. Be warned though, your pets will need looking after. Still it's worth the effort to have a companion join you on your journey.


- Feed a tameable wild animal 4 serves of a food they like and they'll be tamed. To feed an animal just place the food on the ground and let them eat it.

== Tameable animals:

···> Rabbit (winter & summer - once tamed your pet rabbit won't change colour with season)

···> Spider (only the regular spider currently, might add warrior/cave variants later)

···> Bat

···> Pengull

···> Hounds (regular, fire, ice)

···> Gobbler

···> Slurtle

···> Snurtle

== Fine details:

- Pets have both health and hunger, you will need to feed and heal them to keep them alive

- Mouse over them to get their hunger/health status

- Once tamed, pets no longer eat food off the ground, you have to feed them yourself (they're well trained)

- You can pickup your pet and carry it round in your bags (helpful to keep them from being killed in fights)

- When you feed your hungry pets you'll gain 5 sanity

- Every time your pet is attacked you'll lose 1 sanity

- If your pet dies you'll lose sanity. The older your pet the more sanity lost (20 for new pets, 100 after ~25 days)

- If you kill a wild animal of the same type as your pet you will lose 5 sanity

- Some (but not all) pets will help you fight like hired pigs do

- Tamed animals are smaller than their wild counterparts

== Future plans:

- Add ability to tame more animals

- Add tougher taming requirements for certain pets

- Increase the required food to keep bigger pets happy

- Add pet specific behaviours (find food/treasure, help chop trees or mine)

- Add rare spawn pet specific creatures like cats, for the ultimate in furry pet goodness

The link doesn't work?  It links to this page for me?  That text is just a cut+paste of the Readme.txt which links to this page.  There isn't any forum thread as such, just this page.

There must be a bug or something becasue for some reason some of the time I can pick up the rabbit, and sometimes it just inspects it. Also, I think when you murder your pet you should lose some sanity.

imo petting hounds should be difficult, like you should build cages and feed them for few days, after those few days it will be a worthy component

love the idea of the mod but you should make a slurper tameable, he could be weak but give you a light sorce, kind of

The very first item on my "Future Plans" list is "Add ability to tame more animals" :D

Sounds funny. I'll try it. By the way, can we tame Tree Guards? Nah, I'm kiding.
Just gat an idea. What if those pets had some aura? For exemple Cold Resistance aura for the Pingull pet, Sanity Aura for the Rabbit, or Insanity Aura for the Spider.
